---> Economic Development Master Plan - Phase One
For the last several decades, College Station has served as a regional economic hub within the Texas Triangle. A significant amount of the area’s retail activities, most of the tourist accommodations and attractions, and the largest employer (Texas A&M University) are found within College Station. A strong local economy and its associated tax revenues have enabled the City to maintain its most significant competitive edge – a high quality of life. It is this high quality of life that attracts and retains residents, visitors, and businesses that distinguishes us from other communities in the region, in Texas, and across the United States.
The Economic Development division is dedicated to promoting and supporting continued growth and diversification of College Station’s economy. The division accomplishes this through partnerships with regional stakeholders and private interests; recruitment of new businesses to the City; assistance to businesses expanding in the City; leading efforts at stabilizing and redeveloping areas of the City; marketing the advantages of conducting business in the City; and promoting emerging opportunities. The Economic Development division plays a central role in enhancing the city’s character and identity by assigning in the identification of, planning for, and managing investment and reinvestment in the City’s neighborhoods, districts, corridors, and redevelopment areas.
